Trimming Audio Files

Greetings, I have been using Audacity for a number of years now. One situation that I encounter very frequently is trimming MP3 files, without re-processing such files. I would love to have such a feature. Suggestion for implementation: Once the file is opened, and being played, it would be ideal to have:

- A small button to click at the start of the selection - A small button to click at the end of the selection - Both markers (beginning and end of the selection) are mouse adjustable for finer/exact marker spot - Edit menu can now have choices such as Delete Selection, or Delete All Keeping Selection.

- Also, a Save and a Save As items would be added to the File Menu.

Again, it's only trimming the audio file, no processing or Exporting, or using encoders.

I encounter this situation almost daily, and currently I use MP3DirectCut, but I'm not very happy with its controls. I'd rather use Audacity for that purpose.

Thank you.
